There are more laws against schools teaching Critical Race Theory than schools that teach Critical Race Theory.

Boy oh boy, some conservatives continue to be blowing a gasket about Critical Race Theory.
And hint: CRT is not radical if you actually know what it is. The ideal that race is embedded in the law and our nation’s institutions is simply a historical fact.

Just as “fake news” really means “reporting I don’t like” and “cancel culture” means “accountability I don’t like,” “CRT” means “any conversation about race I don’t like.”

The Constitution of the Republic of Texas enshrined slavery, banned the manumission of enslaved people, and barred black people and native americans from citizenship. You could not make try harder to make the 1619 Project's argument for them https://t.co/rhbWMTN62n

This is an amazing resource. Efforts to restrict teaching about racism and bias have multiplied across the U.S.https://t.co/2Z0hx1vf8l

Indoctrination task forces now demanding teachers turn over lesson plans involving ELL, justice curriculum and 1619 Project. This is not a sign of a healthy, free society. https://t.co/KBCp5zdnSn

This white panic about "teaching Critical Race Theory in schools" (when it's not taught in anything lower than a collegiate seminar) would be funny if it wasn't for the inevitability that everything from Toni Morrison to George Washington Carver is going to be branded as CRT.

This "rule" makes slavery, Native dispossession, Reconstruction, lynching, Jim Crow, and any number of other basic "factual" elements of American history either inexplicable or impossible to take seriously. And that's the point. It's got nothing to do with CRT. https://t.co/ZZuvyyIova pic.twitter.com/2TrDyxfYud
